Ferret Cam

Children and their families had a wonderful time learning about ferrets last Monday evening at the Atascocita Branch Library.

If you missed out on the fun, but are interested in ferrets, I would like to recommend checking out the ferret cam at the National Zoo's Conservation and Research Center.  At this site, you will be able to view a nesting box at the Zoo's Virginia campus.  Soon this mother ferret will have her babies, and you will be able to view them as well.

"Once believed to be extinct, black-footed ferrets had a banner year for breeding at the National Zoo’s conservation facility in Front Royal, Virginia. Twelve litters of black-footed ferrets were born at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute in 2010, including litters born to four females who have never had kits."
